We started this week by meeting our team leaders. They assigned us background readings on the broad topic of our projects–and then made us explain them. We had a lecture from Dr. Gonzalez on how to define a research project that will have some significance in the world, and then a practicum on how to demonstrate the significance of that project. Karen continued our annotation lessons, Arjun talked to us about geolocalization, Davy gave us a lecture on computer science, and Kevin gave a presentation on environmental monitoring. We are now producing data–it’s so nice to see concrete outcomes already!
